Is it possible to save outlook contacts without opening the program?

My mom DLed a virus that has crippled everything, and since the computer needed to be reformatted anyway, I want to just save her files & start over.

I basically can't use any programs except folders, otherwise I get spammed with alerts & BS.

Any ideas?

Unless the virus directly affected them, you should be able to copy the Outlook files containing your mom's Outlook contacts lists, e-mails, etc. to another drive without opening Outlook. The exact locations and file names used will depend on the versions of Windows and Outlook that are being used.
